Favorite thing: <BR><font color=#11788A><font size=+1>TAMERLANE'S TOMB</font></font><BR>
Tamerlane is a very famous historic charachter in <font color=#11788A>Samarkand</font>. Tamerlane conquered Afghanistan and North India (including Delhi), and founded the Moghul Empire. <BR>
Knowed as Gur-Emir Mausoleum, the building (15th century) is quite small and has beautiful blue-toped towers. The marble tomb is simple and harmonious, but what you appreciate most inside here is the <font color=#11788A>fresh temperature</font>. You think it twice when you have to go outside again!!<BR>
